Haslam Officiates at Daughter’s Wedding Ceremony

As noted by President Obama, Gov. Bill Haslam planned to perform the marriage ceremony Saturday evening at the wedding of his daughter, Annie, to David Colquitt at the governor’s residence in Nashville.
After Haslam introduced Obama at a Washington news conference Friday, the president noted:
“I also want to thank Governor Bill Haslam of Tennessee for taking the time to be here today, and the great work that he’s doing in Tennessee. I’m especially appreciative because I found that his daughter is getting married, and he is doing the ceremony tomorrow, so we’ve got to get him back on time.  ”
The wedding rehearsal dinner for the couple, who met as students at Princeton University in 2005, was Friday night at Belle Meade Country Club in Nashville. The governor made it back in time for the event.
Tennessee law allows governors to perform wedding ceremonies and several have done so. Haslam’s predecessor, former Gov. Phil Bredesen, presided over the marriage of his son, Benjamin, three years ago.
